Congratulations, Graduates!

SUNY Downstate Medical Center celebrated more than 600 graduates from its College of Medicine, School of Graduate Studies, School of Public Health, College of Nursing, and the College for Health-Related Professions, and honored several leaders in academia, medicine, and research at its 52nd Commencement at Carnegie Hall on May 21, 2019.


“After years of training and serving patients in our most diverse community with unique health challenges, this graduating class is poised to go out and serve communities with the mission of keeping patients and families healthy and safe. This generation of doctors, nurses, and medical professionals are driven to do more than that just provide care for the ill, but they also stand ready to shape the future of healthcare.”
